Any cat breeding practices that places pedigree felines into cages 24-7 dramatically interferees with the health of that kitty. It is not natural nor normal for a cat to be placed into a cage all day long. A cat needs to exercise & act like a cat.
Imagine spending your whole life caged in a space so small you could not move your arms or turn around. That's the sad life of all of our pedigreed cats that are used for breeding world wide. Pedigreed felines are frequently confined in spaces so small that they can not live their natural way of life walking on all 4 paws. These unnatural practices enhance their immune systems, so to keep the cat appearing healthy they are pumped full of antibiotics, damaging the integrity of the felines entire health.
These unnatural practices of caging pedigree felines are promoted by the cat fancy community that are involved with breeding of pedigreed cats. Cat breeding practices promotes illness inelines that otherwise would not occur if feline was to be free all day long to roam in owners home.
To prove what I am saying is, lets place a cat breeder in a cage with just enough room to sit, walk a few steps and do a bowel movement & eat. If it is unhealthy for a human cat breeder it is certainly unhealthy for a feline cat.
Do you wonder why you read so many complaints from buyers of pedigree cats always complaining they are "bought a sick cat"? When the consumer goes to the cat breeders home to buy the cat or kitten the cat looks fine. The reason is the cat breeder has the feline on high dosages of antibiotics. The problems come after the kitten gets to its new home. Within 24 hours or less the cat will be showing its illness signs that were suppressed by those large dosages of antibiotics given by the cat breeder. The kitten was sick before the consumer purchased this cat. The antibiotics just doctored it up to fool the buyer and so the sale can be made.
Very famous breeders keep their queens on antibiotics all along their own pregnancy. Then you wonder why the kittens are so sickly. If a women had any form of medication during her pregnancy its is very dangerous. Not so with these cat breeders. They have totally destroyed the integrity of the pedigreed cats immune system by all the medicating they do, because they do not know what natural foods to feed and do not know how to care for cats in general. Cat breeders have destroyed our pedigree cats completely. How sad is that? Its very sad indeed.
CFA & all the other cat registries profess they care about the welfare of felines everywhere. That is a ruse. These cat registries and the entire cat breeding community have absolutely no interest in the welfare of cats. Their only interest and passion is to fill their pockets with money they get from the sales of their cats. And continue to attend cat shows to win those covetous ribbons to feed their insatiable egos that their cats are the "best". To be showoffs and say, "my cat is better then hers / his." It's just an adult game of gossip and cat fights addicted to felines and then they become cat hoarders.
And for those show cat exhibitors who say they do not make any money selling kittens. They will say they come out even because of all the expenses just running a cattery. They insist on spending all that money to have that cattery. Because they all have to outdo each other. Do not every believe they do not make any money. They make plenty of hard cash. But they make most of their money once their cat / kitten gets its covet title of Champion or Grand Champion etc. Then they can sell the kittens for outrageous prices in the thousands to other cat breeders & newbies that want to become breeders.
